It Takes Real Courage to Ask for Help. We Know. We’ve Asked.

Forge your health when and where you need it.

Forge, previously known as Strive Health and VFR Healthcare, is the outpatient provider for those dealing with substance use, mental health, or trauma issues - delivered virtually from the comfort, privacy, and convenience of your home or in-person at our beautifully-designed, welcoming offices.

If you are a Veteran or First Responder, look no further, we know the effects firsthand of service to country and community.

If you’re willing to commit, we can bring you from hurt to heal.

Don’t worry about cost you have enough on your mind. Through innovation and dedication we are elevating in-network care. All of our services – Intensive Outpatient (IOP), Outpatient (OP), and Medication (MAT) services – are in-network. Period.

Begin moving toward your future.


Trust is earned, not given. Both of us have work to do.

We know the grit, the determination and the effort it takes to admit your truth and find your future. Every single damn day. How do we know? Because we’ve been there too. Our founding team is a band of Veterans, people in recovery, and people who have had friends and family who have been through what you are experiencing.

We’ve built a company with the best people in the world at treating and healing addiction, trauma, co-occurring conditions and we’re ready to work with you. It’s not where we change your game. It’s how.

Whether through telehealth or face-to-face, we want you to stay home. But not stay stuck. Are you in?


Unmatched leadership in serving Veterans and First Responders.

Forge VFR (Veteran and First Responder) is mission-focused on improving the mental health and well-being of active-duty servicemembers, Veterans, First Responders, and their families. Our dedication to this mission earned us a distinct reputation and the trust of departments, agencies, and organizations everywhere. This includes making history with a first-of-its-kind partnership with the VA to enhance the access to behavioral health care to reduce suicide. Through this partnership, we work with the VA to provide care in underserved areas and ensure Veterans and their families get the highest-quality care.

Our confidential services are all in-network with the Veterans Community Care Network (VACCN), Humana Military (TRICARE), and commercial health insurance plans. Our multidisciplinary teams of clinicians and medical professionals, many of whom are Veterans or First Responders, are highly trained and ready to work with you.
